Philon reopens recruitment

Recruiting is back on for Darius Philon.

The athletic defensive lineman from Vigor in Mobile, Ala., has decommitted from Auburn and reopened his recruitment according to the Press-Register.

Philon, 6-foot-2 and 260 pounds, committed to Auburn a few months ago shortly after receiving an offer. Since then, he’s added several more offers including one from Alabama.

"I feel like I was rushing at the time,"Philon told the Press-Register via al.com. "You know how you have an offer from an SEC school in your state and you just go for what you know, especially if they're known for winning.

"I shouldn't have committed early. Basically, I was just rushing things and being hard-headed."

Philon, rated a 3-star, plans to hold off on a decision until after his senior season. He also has offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State, Texas Tech, Southern Miss, Memphis and South Alabama.
